Tyler was awesome to say the least. He was prompt and good about communicating with me throughout the entire process of working with him. He fixed a number of issues with my car and I have the quotes/invoices to prove that I saved over 50% by using YourMechanic over said autoshop. I will definitely look to book work with YourMechanic, and specifically Tyler, for any car care needs in the future!

All about Water Pump Replacement

The water pump, a container made of aluminum or iron, is part of the cooling system. It contains an impeller (looks like a fan) that circulates water and coolant throughout the cooling system, keeping the engine from overheating. It is located in the engine compartment. For the water pump to work, it needs to turn. This is accomplished either by the drive belt or timing belt/chain. If the water pump is not working, the coolant will not circulate through the cooling system causing the engine to overheat and get severe damages.
